    Wall and Floor Tiling Job in North Lincolnshire

    Tiler needed to rectify the issues left by the last joker of a tradesperson. Plus en-suite from scratch

    Flooring (600 x 600mm tiles) – You will see they have cut the floor tiles too short around the bath side edge, they seriously miscalculated this although I’m not convinced they even engaged their brains. To hide this they cut down the bath panel in height and tried to silicone it to the floor! As such 4 of the floor tiles will need to be lifting and replaced correctly.

    Window wall (900 x 300mm tiles) – Up to the bottom of the window the tiling is OK, just OK. From there on upwards it is a dogs dinner. Tiles don’t line up with each other above the window, none of the trim is level/straight, the window reveals are totally uneven with none of the tiles sitting flush with the trim. The window sill tiles have been cut short and the one inch gap filled with grout. All of this mess on perfectly flat untouched walls. I’m not sure what the easiest option is here….tile over the top of the entire wall, or just remove the tiles from the window up?

    Concealed cistern and soil stack (900 x 300mm tiles) – They have used the wrong coloured trim on one the edges on the cistern, one of the tiles is sat noticeabley proud. In an ideal world we would just replace that one tile, but we suspect that all the tiles upwards from it on the soil stack would then look wrong. Again, unsure of the best solution here?

    We also have an ensuite ready for full re-fit but it’s been put on hold due to this con-man. Ensuite is 2.5 x 1.4 x 2.4m. Reboard all walls (previously tiled directly onto bare board so the walls surface is awful). Full tiling to all walls, niche in shower. Tiles already sourced are these Johnsons tiles for the walls Johnson Tiles — Select Collection — Savoy - and 600 x 600mm floor tiles.

    I know tilers shouldn't plumb, and vice versa, but if there was a company that could offer both trades that would be ideal. Plentiful tea/coffee, biscuits and bacon banjos.

    Unfortunately that is pretty bad! Not sure any tiler would leave some of that work or be associated with it - looks like a complete strip out to me - setting out onwards.
